Exclamation Problem With Monitor

Ok so this is the isssue i have right now. I just got a new computer built for me and i just managed to take it home yesterday. It starts up fine and all but when i go and plug in my monitor to my computer there's no signal. I then tried it on my labtop and connected the monitor to the labtop and the screen worked just fine. I even went out and bought a new screen and that screen didnt work on my computer even with a new cable. I tried it on my labtop and it worked fine.

I was told by a friend it might be something that is loose inside like the RAM for example. I looked inside and i couldnt finnd anything loose. (keep in mind im no computer wiz) Does anyone know the issue, or what it could possibly be?

Thanks!

Default Re: Problem With Monitor

Its probally an issue with the PC not the monitor.
Did it work before you brought it home, ie did the builder test/show you it working?
Are there any beeps when you trun on the PC?
Are you using a graphics card or motherboard built in?
Can you get into the BIOS?

it had to have worked at the place i brought it to because he installed vista and did updates and everything..

there no beeps, and i cannot get into the bios because i cannot see the screen, when i turn the screen on and the computer is on and everything is connected the screen turns on fine and then says no signal, then goes black..

i got a new motherboard and graphics card installed and im not sure what you mean by built in..if you mean like brand new yes they are..
